Glacier wrote:"An ancient and powerful scroll came into my possession. One that once belonged to the Magisters of the Tevinter Imperium. It "told" me of this thaig. This is a quest I embark upon warily, but I embark none the less. Certainly THEY do not posses more knowledge of your past than you, your Majesty"
"Of course not," said the King as he quickly raised his hand in dismissal. Morrgain grinned under her cloak. Zasalim had played his hand well with this by stroking the legendary ego of the dwarven race.
"You must understand though," said the King as he realized his own fault in the making and was quickly attempting to back track. "Our civilization was fragmented back from the time the Darkspawn first emerged. Our history is a long and detailed one, some with parts missing, and our Shapers are eagerly working to recover it. Tell me, did you being this scroll with you? Our Shapers and historians would be very interested to examine it."A Templar in Hiding - QUEST COMPLETED: Deacon
Sigment wrote:"With respect, sir... I am not sure that we have the manpower for that task. Given what the Warden-Commander is capable of, if she wanted to leave, I am doubtful that we would be able to prevent her from doing so with sheer force." It wasn't just pointless worrying. She didn't get where she was due to her looks. She was a capable warrior. Add to that, the gauntlet she possessed, and she would have no trouble tearing through an armed guard to leave the city. "It may not be best to antagonize her. Doing so may only play into the Teryn's plans. As you said, Messere, he is a powerful manipulator of men."
"There's not much choice in the matter," replied the Arl as he sat down back behind his desk and leaned back in the chair. "I wish there was, believe me. The new Warden-Commander is a ally in this perilous time, and we need all the support we can get at this time. But we also need to understand what has happened. We need to know what shard of truth the Teryn used and she is one of the few that is able to provide that knowledge."
The Arl paused and looked at the papers at his desk. "If she is unwilling to do so, we can contain her. We have enough mages still we can do that and extract the truth if we need. If she happens to die, well, there are enough Wardens to replace her and still keep an alliance with the other Wardens. After all, she is only one woman."
Sigment wrote:"Your Grace, the child I mentioned had been by my side during the Battle of Redcliffe, and she was there when you and I met after the battle. I lost track of her after we arrived in Lothering. Are you sure that you do not remember her?"
The Arl shook his head. "I am sorry, Deacon, but I do not recall such a child. I can have guards search for her if you would like. But once we established camp and assumed duties, information and refugee management was delegated to several camp directors instead of me so we can focus on our counter strike and war."
A knock at the door interrupted the two men and a messenger appeared and handed a letter to the Arl. He took it, and a moment after reading its contents, frowned and leaned back into his chair. "Now, it would seem as if someone has been assassinating targets all over Lothering."
